Mountain Spirit Ride - Landmannalaugar


Mountain Spirit Ride - Landmannalaugar
East and South Iceland

Mount Hekla is a highly active volcano often titled the “Queen of Iceland”. The mountain towers regally over the region and every day we see evidence of its numerous devastating eruptions throughout the ages. In olden times people actually believed it to be the gateway to hell. Landmannalaugar is a geothermal wonderland in the southern highlands. Its natural bathing pools are only one of the highlights which make this area one of Iceland’s most popular destinations for nature lovers.

Itinerary A

On our way to the farm we visit the hot springs of Geysir and Gullfoss Waterfall. Our ride starts into the mountains, taking in majestic glaciers, the glacier-fed river Markarfljót and the unforgettable Reykjadalir valley with the steaming hot springs. The beautiful area Landmannahellir is a fitting outpost in the central highlands before going on to enjoy the colourful rhyolite mountains in Landmannalaugar, surrounded by black lava fields.

Our way back to civilisation leads us down from the mountains and into black lava and green valleys. The spirited and sure-footed horses make this tour an experience of a lifetime for anyone seeking a challenging highland adventure.
Accommodation on this ride is in mountain cabins and a holiday farm in sleeping bags. Warm showers are available all the nights except for one and the cabin at Hólaskógur also offers a sauna. Two nights are spent in Reykjavík, in a guesthouse in rooms with shared facilities.

Itinerary B
On our way to the Farm Kálfhóll we visit the hot springs of Geysir and Gullfoss Waterfall. Our ride starts along the river banks of the mighty glacial river Thjórsá, with a magnificient view on glacier Eyjafjallajökull and Volcano Hekla. The beautiful area Landmannahellir is a fitting outpost in the central highlands before going on to enjoy the colourful rhyolite mountains in Landmannalaugar, surrounded by black lava fields.
